From Snowboy:
"My first single was a project put together by my friend BILL BAILEY and additional funding by another, ALLEN BURRELL. BILL just wanted to release a single as a project to see how it gets made and distributed etc. and so he asked me to do it. This EP represented what I was into then: The Washington Funk called GO GO, Rap (I was a regular Rapper at the UK's first Rap night called THE LANGUAGE LAB, Gossips, Soho, London) and Latin (dedicated to my percussion tutor ROBIN JONES). "Beat" got a lot of play on local radio and I did a couple of radio interviews, the Rap track got in the top ten of the BEAT BOX rap chart in BLUES & SOUL and the "Guaguanco" got Jazz Dance spins. This record was rough but it was my first one. There were only 750 pressed, and I remember us all sitting around our dining room table Prit-sticking the sleeves together! I used to play percussion for a local 'alternative' music band called ANTIC HAY/BOMB PARTY/WARSAW and that's where the guitarist came from, by the way. Ah - HAPPY DAYS!"
